Triad of Fates is one of the newest "Theros" spoilers revealed today Sept. 12, 2013 from Wizards of the Coast's upcoming expert "Magic: The Gathering" expansion set in an article by Adam Styborski on DailyMTG.com. This rare legendary creature can help you gain a significant amount of card advantage over the course of a long game.
Triad of Fates - 2WB
Legendary Creature - Human Wizard (Rare)
1, Tap: Put a fate counter on another target creature.
W, Tap: Exile target creature that has a fate counter on it, then return it to the battlefield under its owner's control.
B, Tap: Exile target creature that has a fate counter on it. Its controller draws two cards.
Equipping Triad of Fates with Illusionist's Bracers will allow you to double up on the amount of fate counters you distribute, creatures you flicker, and creatures you exile.
Flickering one of your own creatures with Triad of Fates will allow you to save it from a removal spell while abusing its "enters the battlefield" or "leaves the battlefield" ability. Prime targets include Sin Collector, Shadowborn Demon, Angel of Serenity, and Ashen Rider.
Triad of Fates third ability can exile one of your opponent's troublesome threats if you're out of removal spells. The downside is they'll gain two replacements. Alternatively you could use Triad of Fates on one of your creatures that's just going to die anyways to gain card advantage. If you control a permanent that can make creature tokens such as Heliod, God of the Sun or Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts you'll have a good way of drawing cards without sacrificing your board position too much.
Because Triad of Fates is a Human you'll get a 2/2 black Zombie creature token even if your adversary manages to destroy it if you control a Xathrid Necromancer.
How will you use Triad of Fates?
